I didn't say anything about Republicans.

My point is that the Tea Party pretends to speak truth to power and pretends to stand up for Main Street against Wall Street, but all they've ever really done is peddle in ridiculous conspiracy theories.

You all make is seem as though people cannot be outraged by behavior that is technically legal, even if it's immoral. The outrage is completely justified. And the more we've learned about the behavior of these firms, the clearer it has become that what they did actually was illegal in many cases.

And even if it weren't, I'd be more than pleased if prosecutors found other ways of putting these crooks in jail. They figured out a way to get Al Capone, didn't they? Anyone feel sorry for him?

Tax evasion did Al in, and that too is illegal.
Exactly what other means do you have in mind ?

Well, that Al Capone bit was mainly just a rant. My point is that tax evasion was the least of his crimes, but they used that to nail him because it was their strongest case. I'm just hoping that if the feds can't nail Goldman for securities fraud or perjury that they have something else up their sleeve.

Goldman should be strung up by their balls.
